Adrian Gonzalez to sign with Mets, pending physical

Reports: Mets Planning to Sign Former Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez

In their quest to bring in new faces to the organization while still being as cheap as possible, the Mets have signed first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. He was sent to the Braves as part of a trade for Matt Kemp, and Atlanta quickly released the 35-year-old slugger and multiple Gold Glove victor.

Gonzalez played 71 games with the Dodgers in 2017, when back injuries derailed his season. The Braves released Gonzalez shortly after the trade.

Ensminger is replacing Matt Canada, who has parted ways with the team after only 12-months and a mutual financial agreement. He got choked up when he started to talk about playing quarterback in Tiger Stadium for Coach Charlie Mack.

In those 71 games, Gonzalez batted.242/.287/.355 with three home runs and 30 RBIs.

Since 1983, Mark Herrmann has coveredBrookhaven, Southampton and East Hampton on the news side, and high schools, the Islanders, the Mets and golf for Newsday sports.His assignments have includedthe Olympics, March Madness, the Triple Crown, Stanley Cup, Super Bowl and World Series. Gonzalez can afford to take less money for a better situation since he's still being paid $22.357 million by the Braves for 2018. He has yet to prove reliable against Major League Baseball pitching, posting a.198 average with nine home runs and 26 RBI in 167 at-bats last season. Terms of his deal with the Mets have not been made available, however, the aforementioned would surely allow him to sign for the league minimum.
